It seems that class time doesn't allow room for teachers to have fun with crafts, but if they are incorporated with some fun math activities - why not go for it. Below are some easy crafts for the Superbowl, which is right around the corner!
Superbowl Football Chain
White crayon or colored pencil
Stapler or tape
Have students start making their football link. When they're done, have them line up to build the chain. Start a timer for 20 second intervals and measure the length each time it goes off. See if you get faster, slower or stay steady.
Add in green links and skip count by your desired number to insert football links.
Create a paper chain "bar graph" hung from the wall or bulletin board. To make the graph use class stats like number of birthdays in each month or favorite school subject. Compare results.
Don't forget, Valentine's Day is right around the corner! While you're here, take a look at our Valentine's Cards
And as always, treat yourself or better yet get a friend or spouse to treat you with a giftbox from PamperedTeacher.com
